Media too busy mocking Trump attorneys to actually name them

350x250Just as predicted by one of the president's attorneys, journalists who have been demanding evidence of election fraud have chosen to ignore the evidence it was presented.


Guiliani others press conference 2A trio of Trump campaign attorneys led by Rudy Giuliani yesterday made numerous claims of election fraud during a 90-minute press conference. Some are easy to believe – such as alleging Democrat-run cities, notorious for cheating, did so in huge numbers to help their party win the White House.

Other claims are more questionable, such as claiming U.S. Army soldiers in Germany confiscated an election server; the U.S. Army has reportedly denied that happened and so did DHS election official Chris Krebs, before he was fired by President Trump.

There is also the biggest bombshell accusation of all, perhaps ever in a presidential campaign: Computer software was utilized to manipulate vote totals on behalf of Joe Biden, but its nefarious operators got caught. As the attorneys stated, what is being mocked by many as an outlandish conspiracy theory today was described as “vulnerable to attack” in a letter signed 11 months ago by prominent Democrats, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Ron Wyden, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

“What you have heard, I'm sure in the fake newspapers tomorrow, will be one of two things: Either there was not sufficient evidence that we've presented or we spoke too long.”

Jenna Ellis, attorney

“I don't know what you need to wake you up to do your job and inform the American people, whether you like it or not.”

Rudy Giuliani, attorney

Yet the same Associated Press wire service that claimed it chased down an unnamed Army spokesman about the server wrote dismissively about the Thursday press conference. President Trump is “not sending his best” in his effort to prove election fraud, the AP snidely wrote, describing legal missteps and misspelled words in a story that was supposed to describe the news conference itself.

To be totally transparent, One News Now is a subscriber to the AP wire service and, with the exception of stories dealing with politics, finds little fault with the content. But AP's initial post-press conference story – from supposedly one of the world's premier news services – was finally posted for subscribers an hour-and-a-half after the press conference concluded. It read more like a snarky college newspaper op-ed than a news story, and it was especially bizarre that a story mocking the three attorneys entirely failed to mention two of them, Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellis, by name in the 700-word story.

And that is what merits this rare editorial by One News Now. The attorneys who weren’t worthy of a mention by the AP spent much of their time at the microphone shaming the media for dismissing the fraud allegations that have been made so far. In fact, Ellis predicted the same media that is demanding evidence of fraud would ignore the evidence presented.

Her accusation sure seems credible when you realize The Associated Press failed to name the attorney who accurately predicted their unprofessional response. Or perhaps that is why she went unnamed – which only proves her point.
